Police in Ontario, California have arrested a 16-year-old after footage of a kitten being thrown into the air and landing in a street went viral on Twitter over the weekend.

The video shows a teen holding a white kitten while someone records on a cellphone. The teen launches the kitten, and it soars through the air before landing in the middle of a street. The kitten can be heard meowing in distress on the pavement before the video ends.

On Monday, police released a statement saying they arrested a suspect who ran from officers before being tackled:

According to KNBC, the kitten's name is Spots. The feline was recovering at an Inland Empire animal hospital on Sunday.

Spots now has a cast on one leg and wrapping on another leg. The vet said she suffered internal injuries as well. Spots will be staying at the animal hospital so that vets can monitor her progress.

The name of the 16-year-old suspect would not be disclosed, due to his age.
